FLOWERS WEDS IN SECRET

THE KILLERS' frontman BRANDON FLOWERS married his long-term lover in a secret ceremony in Hawaii on Tuesday (02AUG05).

The SMILE LIKE YOU MEAN IT star wanted minimum attention while marrying his beloved TANA MUNBLOWSKY, a retail manager of trendy clothing store Urban Outfitters in Flowers' home town of Las Vegas, Nevada.

And the star even snubbed cheeky SIR ELTON JOHN who was desperate to attend the nuptials, refusing to give him an invitation when he met the rocker earlier this year (05).

A friend says, "Brandon didn't want to make a fuss.

"He's a very reserved Mormon and while he loves performing he doesn't feel the need to be in the spotlight for any other reason than his music."

With his tailored suits, ample eyeliner and penchant for all things sequined, the Killers' Brandon Flowers has earned his fair share of admirers over the past few months. So it'll break more than a few hearts to learn that the dapper frontman is now a married man.

Earlier this week, Flowers married longtime girlfriend Tana Munblowsky in "a small, intimate wedding" in Hawaii, according to a spokesperson for the band's label, Island Records. The rest of the Killers were present for the ceremony and "helped the couple celebrate" afterward.

Munblowsky- or, as she can now be called, ''Mrs. Brightside''works as a retail manager in the band's hometown of Las Vegas.

The Killers were taking a much deserved break in Hawaii after spending most of the past year on the road in support of their double-platinum debut, Hot Fuss. But there's no rest for the weary -or for the newlyweds - as they'll be back on the road starting August 9 in St. Paul, Minnesota, and they've just been added to the growing list of performers at the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards
